Here at Zen Gold we offer a range of services for seasoned buyers, sellers and investors, right through to novices, new to the industry.
Whilst all the information on the website is free for everyone to learn from, our paid services are detailed below:
Fraud Checking / Reporting Service – – – from $99 up to $999
One of our most popular services for those new to Zen Gold is our Fraud Check Service. From a staring price of only $99 we can check the name of an individual or company to see if they are legitimate. We check the worlds largest precious metals fraud database (ours) along with several others we have access to. We will also check several other important factors relevant to anyone considering engaging in a gold deal. From information available this can include company registration, longevity and history. All for only $99 that can be paid directly through our PayPal account, firstname.lastname@example.org. This is normally completed within a few hours.
Should this initial check prove favourable you can proceed to get a full report on the deal for only $999. This is far more comprehensive and will go into detail on the company, its history, licencing, mineral licence, customs licence, background checks on individuals within the company, even accounts if available. PLUS within this cost we include an assessment of any documentation received from your customer. This can be verification of SKRs for buyers or checking SBLCs for sellers, for example. This report will take around 1-2 working days to compile as information is often needed from outside agencies.
See our Fraud Page for some of the most common scams perpetrated.
Contracting & Lecturing Services – – – $250 / hour
As a Level 4 Qualified Fraud Investigator with over a decade of knowledge in the industry, Mr Milbourn can be contracted out to assist on projects where an innate understanding and extensive experience of the mechanics behind a gold transaction is needed but the client does not need the whole Zen Gold Team behind them, possibly due to already having that infrastructure in place on the ground. Mr Milbourn’s Hourly rate is $250. This can also include lecturing and public speaking as has been used by clients in the past for training. Contact Us for more information.
Full ‘On Ground’ Services – – – from $2500 a day
For this service we require a limited amount of paperwork from our clients including proof of funds. Our procedures are simple and effective and we start with a meeting where we would exchange paperwork and sign contracts to agree terms and costs.
The first part of our job is to spend time negotiating prior to travel, so that basic terms of a supply or purchase agreement with seller or buyer are settled before any expenses are incurred in flights and accommodation.
Contracts are always signed face to face on the ground. Where our various teams in different countries come into play. Correct paperwork, licencing and shipping can then be obtained using the Zen Gold team or trusted partners.
Payment for our services covers the whole team and include the fraud team, web team and on ground personnel. There are 2 options available, which are a day rate of $5000 (weekly rates can also be negotiated), with all reasonable expenses paid. (ie, flights, accommodation, meals) or a day rate of $2500, with all reasonable expenses paid and a percentage of the profit on the completion of a successful deal.

Zen Gold offer an escrow facility for sellers to safely deposit their gold whilst waiting for funds from a buyer, gold is guaranteed not to be released until funds are paid in full.
